Took Seth to the doctor yesterday. He had blood work to rule out PANDAS and also had some alternative therapies(NAET & cranial sacral). Scoff all you want at alternative medicine but today his vocal tic has calmed right down. This from non-stop, LOUD out of control tics all day Thursday and Friday. We'll get the results of the blood draw next week.
Of course there is the possibility that something at school is setting him off neurologically? He does not seem stressed to go. He's one of the most popular in his class and he's doing fine grades wise. He likes his teacher. I'm wondering if there is a chemical cleaner or something perhaps involved? His tics have gotten progressively worse since school started.
We'll figure it out. Thanks to those of you who e-mailed to check in with us.
Riley got her yellow stripe today at the award ceremony after martial arts class. She absolutely beamed! No sibling clapped harder for their sister or brother than Seth did.
Their neurological systems may be fragile, but my children have strong, loving hearts, overflowing with kindness.
Such good kids. Both of them.
